Female Aspiring Business Scholars Summer Program

The Female Aspiring Business Scholars (FABS) mission is to inspire and empower young women to pursue a business degree and grow the pipeline of women entering into essential business careers. FABS summer camp offers high school juniors and seniors an avenue to explore business and an opportunity to earn 3 hours of college credit through seminars with UD faculty and business professionals, local networking events, and professional skills workshops. Through immersive and interactive experiences on and around the University of Dayton campus, students will build their professional skills and learn to apply essential business practices to design their own business plans.

The School of Business Administration (SBA) welcomes students of all backgrounds and experiences who celebrate and support our mission to be a part of FABS.
